For any looking to embark on home improvement projects, a new countertop might be all you need to modernize your kitchen and bathroom. With the right pattern, what you can achieve with a countertop is boundless. With the right countertop surface, you can not only optimize your kitchen for constant use but also do this while enjoying optimum strength and durability.
But imagine you see a countertop design you love. But it has the bathroom countertop tag. Does this imply that you cannot use it for your kitchen?
This begs the question of what is the difference between bathroom and kitchen countertops? While the patterns, designs, and the process of installing both countertops may show a few similarities, there are still some subtle variations to know. And these variations will undoubtedly be instrumental to your next countertop choice.
Countertops tailored to bathrooms are usually much smaller than those intended for use in the kitchen. The average kitchen countertop has a dimension of 36 x 25 inches in terms of height and width respectively. With this, you get enough space for your cooker to fit in your sink. Conversely, the average bathroom countertop’s height is usually 4 inches lesser. However, the ultimate decision is only a matter of personal preferences. If you’re a tall person, chances are you’ll always prefer tall counters. Also, kitchen countertops are quite thicker, considering the environment where you’re using them.
Also, there are some width and height considerations to note before making a choice. These include your appliances, cabinets, sink, and island. Once you factor in all these, the choice of the right option becomes clearer and more straightforward.
Countertops used in the bathroom are not usually suited for wet environments. Your bathroom is an entirely different space in terms of dryness and wetness, compared to your kitchen. In the kitchen, the countertop is more likely to be stained by leftovers or silverware marks. Whereas, the kind of stain you’ll find in the bathroom is usually more potentially detrimental to the integrity of the countertop. In essence, you’ll find it easier to clean ketchup than to clean toothpaste, mouthwash, or other similar products. Not to mention the fact that your bathroom is very much susceptible to flooding and leak threats.
As such, if you’re considering a home improvement, you should always consider a material that is tailored to both spaces.
As luck would have it, quartz is the straightforward answer. This material mimics the beauty of high-end countertops and offers them without forging durability. The material is an inherent effective sealing property that prevents penetration of liquid or other threats to its integrity. Also, its maintenance demand is relatively negligible. So, you can enjoy immense stain resistance, wonderful aesthetics, and longevity without breaking the bank.
Also, regardless of where the installation is taking place, quartz countertops are very easy to install. So, you get to save costs in this regard as well.
